Save 25% On a Great Pen That Could Also Save Your Life
The best survival tool is the one you always have on you. Tactical pens rarely match the full capabilities of dedicated survival tools, but you’re more likely to need a pen on a daily basis, and therefore, keep one always close at hand. The TriTac EDC tactical pen from Brooklyn-based StatGear understands this logic perfectly, balancing everyday needs with a few key design tweaks to answer those “what if” moments. It’s first and foremost a high-quality writing instrument made from aircraft grade aluminum that integrates a famed Fisher Space Ink cartridge, which means it can write in just about every environment including wet conditions and upside down. The kicker is the additional 440c stainless steel knife blade and carbide tip window punch (for breaking glass in an emergency). And right now Gear Patrol readers can buy one for 25% off through the end of 2017 using the coupon code GEARPATROL at checkout.

Don’t Miss Your Chance to Get a Filson Field Watch for $200
This gunmetal Mackinaw watch was built by Shinola for Filson’s lineup of field watches, thus it has a stylish edge in addition to its rugged build. It comes packing a Swiss-made quartz movement inside its 43mm case, and the dial is big, legible and adorned with loads of lume. Traditionally, Filson’s watches have always been…optimistically priced, but The Watch Outlet’s eBay store has a solid 71% markdown. It’s probably worth hurrying, though, as the page indicates there’s a limited quantity left.

One of Our Favorite Pairs of Skis Is Currently 60% Off
A good powder ski has much more to it than just a wide waist, and that’s certainly the case with the Sick Day 125. Line has continued to tweak this ski over the years. Even though this model is a couple of years old, it still hits the Goldilocks Zone of lightweight and stability. The Sick Day’s aspen core is cut with Line’s Magic Finger carbon filaments, which run the entire length of the ski to stiffen the construction without adding much extra weight. Despite its hefty waist, the Sick Day is a deft turner, in part due to a tapered tip and tail that are part of the ski’s five-point profile. Right now you can score them for 60% off at The House.

Deal: Save $250 on Bang & Olufsen’s Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones
Bang & Olufsen released the BeoPlay H8 in 2016, and it’s still one of the best on-ear, noise-canceling headphones you can buy. Each pair is pretty, constructed of metal and leather, and has features like touch controls and 14 hours of battery life (with ANC). You can buy a pair of H8s on Bang & Olufsen’s website for $499 (here), in three colors, or you can get a discounted pair on Amazon for as low as $330 (here). Or you can buy a “manufacturer refurbished” pair on eBay for $250 (here, but only in the gray hazel color way.)

“Manufacturer refurbished” can be a red flag for some, but if you need some reassurance, the headphones come with a one-year warranty and a 30-day return policy.

One of the Year’s Best 4K OLED TVs Costs $5,499 — Get It Today For $2,599
If you’re up to date on the latest TV technologies, you’ll know that OLED TVs are the nicest TVs you can buy. They produce darker blacks and more vibrant colors than any LCD TV. And yes, this superior picture quality comes at a cost. Most 55- and 65-inch OLEDs by LG — who make the crème de la crème of OLED TVs — cost a couple grand. That doesn’t mean there aren’t deals to be had, however.

The 2017 LG E7 OLED is one of the company’s high-end OLEDs — even nicer than its flagship C7P OLEDs — and a 65-inch model usually goes for $5,499. Right now, you can get a holiday deal on that same TV on Amazon for $3,397 (link here). But if you want a real steal, you can get that same TV for $2,599 on eBay. That’s 52-percent off, a total saving of almost $3,000, and it puts this 2017 OLED in the same price range as pretty-nice-but-not-OLED TVs. Insanity.

Also, this is a new TV — not “manufacturer refurbished” like many eBay deals. If you need some extra reassurance, it comes with a 30-day return policy.
